[RESOLVED][BUG] set different governor to powersave failed on dietpi-config

Post by Galadan »

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and I'm not sure if this can be che correct forum page to report this problem.

Anyway today I updated DietPi to v6.27.2 on my RPi 3 model B+.
Afther the update, the cpu governor as moved to powersave from ondemand and core frequency are locked to idle frequency (600MHz) but in /DietPi/dietpi.txt the CONFIG_CPU_GOVERNOR is equal to 'ondemand'.

cpu program tells me that governor is 'powersave'.

When I try to change the governor using dietpi-config I have this output:

Code: Select all

/DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_cpu: line 75: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors: Permission denied
/DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_cpu: line 75: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors: Permission denied
/DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_cpu: line 75: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors: Permission denied
/DietPi/dietpi/func/dietpi-set_cpu: line 75: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors: Permission denied
I'm writing here because using dietpi-bugreport the system tells me that:

Code: Select all

[ INFO ] DietPi-Bugreport | Packing upload archive, please wait...
[  OK  ] DietPi-Bugreport | Connection test: ssh.dietpi.com
[FAILED] DietPi-Bugreport | Failed to connect to SFTP server. Please try again later or report this to DietPi forum or GitHub repo in the first place.
so I can't use this tool to report the bug.


In this forum I found this viewtopic.php?t=982 that can be a similar bug. I tried to change differents Power Supplies but without positive results



Thanks to all in advance! :)
